Play LoungeIt’s quite a lofty concept – to fuse the concepts of design, art and illustration with toy culture – but they seem to pull it off very well. Big kids will love the design-conscious playthings.

Their massive range of action figures takes in widely recognised characters like Jack Pumpkin Head from ‘A Nightmare before Christmas’, Helmut the Hot Dog Man from Will Sweeny’s ‘Tales from the Green Fuzz’ and even more bizarre animal wrestlers and psychotic clockwork bears! Not only that, there are loads of trendy gadgets, arty books and T-shirts too.

This shop is trying something totally different which shoppers will find refreshing. One for those who rue the day they grew up.
